power fade in one channel

Post by abii » Sun Jan 26, 2020 9:09 pm

I'm using a 9V battery and I have some problems when I'm trying to use both channels. When I increase power level in one channel, the second one fades out. I'm wondering wheter buying a power supply will solve the problem... Last time I went up to 100% at ch. A and I had to decrease ch. B to reach an orgasm. I had a HFO few times but only when using one channel, I'd like to reach it using both.

Sounds normal, and yes a power supply will improve things enormously.

As a customer, I can definitely second the post by "admin". The 9V battery should only be seen as a fallback position if connection to a mains supply is impossible (e.g. when you're away from home) or impractical (if you want to stim and be free to move about).
The mains supply provides more power to the circuitry, so you'll immediately notice increased power output to the electrodes. With the mains adaptor, only the most hardened stimmers will even consider getting up to 100%. In addition, you won't "max it out" like you do a 9V battery. Turning up the output on one channel will have no effect on the other. And, of course, you won't experience a gradual reduction in power as the battery goes flat. That can be a real frustration over a long session: just as you want to get to a climax, the power keeps dropping, making it almost impossible.
To summarise, I see the mains adaptor as an essential accessory. Make sure you get the official one, too. You may think you'll be able to get a cheaper equivalent elsewhere, but you really don't want to risk invalidating the box's guarantee by using it.

Mains/12V mode changes everything and after trying it I plan to no longer use 9v battery mode. All though, I've noticed this with ALL estim devices, sometimes one electrode will consume more feeling than the other just by turning it up or down on one. It depends and takes some trying to get the balance right.

*All* stim boxes have a finite limit of the power they can put out. When you reach the 2B's power limit don't turn your box up any higher. At that "maxed-out" point reducing the power on one channel will increase it on the other, and vice versa.

We are all different and 9v is ok for many but TBH 9v doesn't really cut it for me. For those of us who need a bit more "oomph" the 2B fortunately has the option of plugging in the mains adapter to boost power levels up to 30%. If you're not near a wall socket, or need to be portable, an external 12v battery supply has the same effect.

I have a slightly different question relating to this.

I have mains supply and power level set to high.

If I have Ch A on my cock and B on my ass, then when I turn up Ch B I feel A a lot less in my cock. So something like A=50%/B=0% (or the opposite A=0%/B=50%) could be really intense whereas A=50%/B=50% is easy. Since I can still turn both channels up further and feel the increase I'm obviously not hitting the power limit yet. Is it just a case of the electricity having more routes to take and thus not feeling as intense?

Also where exactly should you see the difference in power levels and battery vs mains? For example if I put some pads on my thighs then regardless of power level or mains/battery they contract at the same power percentage. Is it only at the high levels that the difference appears?

I am also familiar with this topic - I assume, however, that it is not due to the 2B, but that your body - the nerve pathways react to the antagonism of the two emotional points and this leads to a changed perception.

demuc1973 is completely correct. What we are talking about here are two different but very similar things - SENSATION and PERCEPTION. We use estim to stimulate our nerves, but no two people are exactly alike. So what one person perceives as 'mild' can feel intense to someone else. That is a matter of individual perception.

When we use 2 channels we have two separate circuits stimulating our sexual nerves. This can sometimes feel like they are competing against each other, so when you increase the power on one channel it can affect the 'perception' of power on the other channel. It's quite normal. The trick is to balance the two channels so they work together in harmony, which comes through experience and understanding your own bodily reactions.

Fortunately the 2B allows us to adjust the output to suit a wide range of different needs and perceptions. As always experiment, experiment, experiment!

Yes, but also the power output is more stable throughout the curve. You especially see the difference during longer stim sessions when the power is still there after your nerves become acclimatized.

Thanks, I thought it was something like this but the hardest thing is explaining to a remote driver that sometimes less power is more painful :)

A good remote control driver should do that via Skype ect. already recognize how the "subject" is doing ...
